Clifford Bryan Floyd
Former general practitioner Croydon 1960-94 (b Carshalton 1929; q UCH 1955; FRCGP), d 17 July 2000. His pioneering drive produced two innovations, both of which have stood the test of time. In 1965 he introduced a car service for patients, at his practice's expense. In 1972 he designed and had constructed a suite of consulting rooms (affectionately known as “The Circus”) to optimise time that patients had with practice staff. He was an accomplished and influential teacher, GP trainer, course organiser, and lecturer in general practice. He always encouraged and was always “sowing seeds” in people's minds. The roots of the healthy cooperation between Croydon's health agencies can be traced to his close associations with Mayday Hospital and his many years as a member of Croydon Health Authority and Local Medical Committee. Ultimately he was appointed LMC chairman. He later developed expertise in caring for people with drug addiction and calmed the chaotic lives of many believed to be beyond help. His energies occupied many other arenas, in particular his family, his church, his garden, and his music. He leaves a wife, Anne, and three children.
